The professors of the University of Helsinki explore society, culture, nature and people from a wide range of perspectives. A celebration is held for the most recently appointed professors twice every year, in May and December.
The public inaugural lectures, which are popularised introductions to the professors’ fields of science and research topics, are open to all. Their topics can range from space weather and the wellbeing of schoolchildren to the Finnish language and nanomedicines. Each lecture lasts 20 minutes, and audience members have the opportunity to move from one lecture venue to another between lectures.
